September 16, 2011 11:03

Jerusalem business owners on Friday were upset about a new law set to take effect next week which forces businesses to close at 11 p.m. and restaurants and cultural institutions to close at midnight, Israel Radio reported.

The law said that business owners could apply to the municipality to remain open later if they could prove that they did not cause a nuisance to the city, according to the report.

In response, business owners circulated a letter saying that the city is encouraging businesses and young people to leave Jerusalem, the report said.
